Harris Hill are recruiting for a Director of Finance & Resources for this Children's Charity based in Hampshire.
Our client is a growing charity, set to establish and grow new income from social enterprise and an increasingly diverse mix of fundraising activities.
We are looking for a hardworking and dynamic individual to lead the organisation's financial management, develop the finance and administration team and play a key role in managing financial and legal risk to the organisation, including overseeing the organisation's HR policies.
Educated to degree level, the successful candidate will be CCAB-qualified, and will bring proven experience of financial management with a passion for improving operational effectiveness.
We are looking for someone with strong analytical and strategic planning skills with an eye for detail, a can-do approach and the ability to relate to and communicate with colleagues across departments. You will particularly need to be able to communicate financial concepts to non-finance colleagues and to build collegiate relationships.
You will be a key member of the leadership team for the organisation, working closely with the chief executive to develop long-term financial plans for the organisation, and deputising for her on occasion as required. Responsible for ensuring robust financial management of and reporting on externally-funded projects, you will have an understanding of restricted funding and grant reporting requirements as well as due diligence procedures. As a key colleague in the development of the new social enterprise funding streams, you also will ideally bring experience of working in a commercial environment.
You will lead a small team and you will be equally comfortable supporting and coaching your team, focussing on the detail of the accounts and presenting to members of the board.
Embracing diversity and inclusion is central to our mission, and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds who share our values.
